Did you keep your old pipes? You could probably find someone interested in a cheap way to lose their secondary cats and resonator so it is a shame to waste it.
coating is for protecting the welds from rusting (yea in Cali it won't happen anytime soon, but still good protection)

also it looks more stealth, you never know when a cop might feel like taking a look down there.

Basicly withstands more heat.

A lot louder than the test pipe I had installed. But I also put a H pipe on that test pipe I had because it got a little raspy on higher rpms.

Im keeping my stock stuff on my car, never know when you need it.

Ya ive had stage 1 for a while.

im waiting for the revised stage 1 to come out.

Noticeably faster yes. With test piping or exhaust it is.

With version 1.4 and test pipe I noticed nothing.

Very cool! How much weight did this save vs. the stock mufflers, and is it louder or quieter than the resonator delete?

2.5 inch stainless steel piping. X pipe. Zoomer mufflers (gutted). 3.5 inch resonated zoomers tips.

Where do you get the tempered coating on the piping. how big is the diameter?

how much the tips and the pipping

Anyways to the story.

Ive never heard of zoomers exhaust before a week ago.

Charlie (cea3) called me up telling me about this place. Since his roomate got some straight pipes installed on his e60 m5 there. He said that the place was very good. Its local so I thought Id check it out.

Now before I went there I had test pipes installed. Which is basicly just 2.5 inch straight pipes with deleted resonator and 2ndary cats hooking up to the stock mandrel bent muffler piping.

After I talked to Rob ( owner? ) I told him I would keep in touch. I needed to do more research. Anyways called up my buddy with a gto and he told me zoomers is very popular with the american muscle car guys.

I did a search on google, and about 12 reveiws came up from vette owners. All of them were great. Also got some results from str8's and cst-v's. All of them the same, great results.

After thinking it over and talking to my buddy with the gto again. He said " I would do it, if you can please vette owners you can please anyone."

So I went back there. Put the car back on the lift and started talking about what I wanted.

First I wanted polished stainless steel. 2.5 inch straight pipes with mufflers and a 3.5 inch tip.

Then after talking it over. It would probably take around 1-2 weeks to make a production peice. So we talked it over and did the following.

2.5 inch stainless steel piping. X pipe. Zoomer mufflers (gutted). 3.5 inch resonated zoomers tips.

Left it there for a couple days and just picked it up today about 4pm.

All I can say is ... Im super happy with the results. Rob and the guys over at zoomers were very helpful and friendly.

The welds were perfect very clean and the bends were very nice. Most amazing job Ive ever seen for it being custom. Its basicly a manufactured peice.

I also asked for tempered coating on the piping.

It made all my expectations. And im going to redyno with the exhaust put on this weekend to see how much more power im making.

I was also talking to him about making production peices. He said that they specialize with muscle cars, but he said if more people are interested he would be happy to make them.

Now they also have a dyno (dynojet) right next door. So if you would like to run afterwards you can do it.


All i can say is im one happy customer. Their work isnt cheap but it reflects the job they do.

The car sounds very deep and throaty now. But not too annoying. Not too loud when cruising but noticable. On WOT it comes alive.


Heres their site.

http://www.zoomersexhaust.com/

Heres some pictures:

Stock piping with resonator and 2ndary cats :



Test pipes installed at valley muffler:







Old piping removed at zoomers :



Exhaust system installed at zoomers :















Ok now heres some sound clips. Ill take more later, if you guys want them.

Quick launch,i stoped at the top of 2nd. Some old lady was giving me and my girlfriend the evil eye. Hahah



Neutral Revs : (the clicking is due to my camera not from the exhaust )



Ok now like I said before if you guys are interested. Let me know and I can talk to rob about pricing and everything.

He will most likey make a polished stainless steel production piece, unless you guys want the tempered paint like mine.

My mid pipe is also flanged on, so if I ever wanted to take out my mid pipe for track use I could. So I would just go downpipe out.
